Clos du Val – Chardonnay – Estate Chardonnay 2014 – Block 5A Carneros – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, full, fresh, quite elegant and fat. It reveals notes of white fruit compote and peach combined with a touch of honey, quince as well as discreet hints of fresh citrus, flowers as well as fine hints of stone fruit. The palate is fruity, suave, well defined, relatively fat, a bit incisive and offers a nice acid frame and a good matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of berries, stewed white peach and crunchy yellow peach associated with slight notes of citrus as well as touches of exotic fruit (mango, quenette, lychee) as well as slight hints of rose. Good length.
